6 Reasons For

Optoma Projectors Have Good Reviews

Optoma is one of the superior projector brands according to average expert and user reviews, and Optoma also has good reviews for its multimedia projectors.

Supports Wi-Fi

The Optoma W305ST supports wi-Fi. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the W305ST do not support wi-Fi.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support wi-Fi and we think the Benq GP20[plb_2231335_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support wi-Fi to this multimedia projector and we think the Benq GP30[plb_2564760_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma W305ST has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other data projectors that came out around the same time as the W305ST.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Optoma ZX210ST[plb_1748910_price] which is cheaper; or the GT1070[pl_2503383_price], or the X351[pl_2821583_price] both from Optoma which has better reviews.

Supports 3D

The Optoma W305ST supports 3D. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the W305ST also support 3D.

There are a number of alternative projectors which support 3D currently available that you might want to consider including a cheaper projector such as the Optoma W350[plb_2797870_price] or you might consider a higher rated projector such as the GT1070[pl_2503383_price], or the X351[pl_2821583_price] both from Optoma.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The Optoma W305ST supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by projectors of this age and type. This multimedia projector also supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1280 x 800. The resolution of all similar spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to it.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years, the Optoma W305ST does not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support full HD including the GT1070[pl_2503383_price], or the GT1080[pl_2415608_price] both from Optoma which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only Fixed Zoom Ratio

This multimedia projector supports a Fixed zoom ratio, which is the most commonly supported zoom ratio on multimedia projectors of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

The lowest RMS rated power of multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the W305ST is 1W and the highest is 30W. At only 2 Watts, the Optoma W305ST has a quite low RMS rated power compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the W305ST.

Chart Edit

5 Other reasons to consider the Optoma W305ST

Running Costs Are OK

The average 1 year running cost of the W305ST is £79 based on average energy prices and usage levels, which is typical compared to the other 118 multimedia projectors of this spec and age.

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when this Optoma projector was released.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,200 ANSI lumens, the Optoma W305ST has a pretty average projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the W305ST.

If this data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the Optoma X351[plb_2821583_price] (3,600 ANSI lumens and higher rated); or the GT760[pl_1995666_price] (3,400 ANSI lumens and cheaper), or the W350[pl_2797870_price] (3,600 ANSI lumens and cheaper) both from Optoma.

The highest resolution of the Optoma W305ST is WXGA (1280x800). That's 51% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) data projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.

Chart Edit

Average Noise Level

At 29 decibels, the Optoma W305ST has a fairly average noise level compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the W305ST.

There are a number of other 29dB noise level data projectors currently available that you might want to look at including the Optoma X305[plb_1726305_price] which has better reviews.
